Welcome to Jello Island

Henry's class is having a luau today.
And other than fruit kabobs or a roasted pig, I had no idea what kind of snack to take.
So I made Jello Island:)Jello Island1 I mixed up three big boxes of Blue Berry Jello in a clear bowl. About halfway through the refrigeration time, pull the bowl out and load it up with gummy fish and sharks.
Jello Island2 When the Jello is completely set, pull it out to decorate. I crumbled up vanilla Oreos in a food processor and sprinkled them onto part of the Jello to make the island. Then I rolled out a few Starburst to make beach towels and added a few sunbathing Teddy Grahams.
Candy/Cookie Palm Trees To make the palm trees, I used a few Pirouette cookies and some green fruit slices. I sliced the fruit slicing thinly, and then attached them to the top of the Pirouette with the help of a few toothpicks.
Jello Island3
This was really easy to do, and I may try it again this summer and actually let the boys helps me when we have more time!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
I think I need a fruity drink with an umbrella in it to celebrate the weekend almost being here:)

Pin It!

That is about the cutest thing EVER! I love that you can 'make & bake' things for Henry's school. We are strictly a 'buy & bring' school...no homemade goodies! I hope he has a great time!

Adorable! I did something similar to this when I was in Home Ec in High School. Sooo cute, I'm sure the kids will LOVE it!!! As for your drink, my fav is... Malibu Rum, Pineapple Juice & Cranberry Juice. Although I never get it because I am usually pregnant or nursing... maybe in a few months LOL : )

amanda said...

SO cute. love it. we had a mom bring in something like that for daycare, but she put in plastic fish and jelly worms in the jello, and didn't have the cute island. totally makes me crave jello now though. lol.

Kelli said...

You are simply one of THE most creative people I know!!!

Heidi said...

This is so cute! I love the fish in the bowl, how did they hold up to being in the fridge though?
What a fun spin on the tropical theme. :)

Shannon @ Posh Pieces said...

I bet the kids got a kick out of that! Great idea.

Cassidy said...

My jaw is on the floor! I made almost the exact "cake" last summer! Great minds think alike! But I think yours turned out much better. I put gummy sharks in the "water" and they floated belly up and looked like squishy bloated dead fish :( Pretty gross, but my 4,2 and 1 year old didn't care. They liked dead fish

Jenny @ DIY Newlyweds said...

Oh my gosh, this is so cute! I may have to try this for my own birthday! I'm thinking of doing a laua bbq. I wonder if I can get away with making it from chocolate pudding instead of jello. If you're a fan of the tv show LOST, this would have been perfect for a LOST party too!

Drama queens mum (Kimberly) said...

That's adorable.
